After 45 years in healthcare, Art retired as a Register Nurse and Director of Nursing Services. Currently, Art is working as a licensed real estate agent with Windermere Homes & Estates; Team Art Terry & Kara for 15 years. Art has been active in our community serving on the Rancho Mirage Chamber of Commerce for 7 years, Cathedral City Streets and Transportation Commission and the Cove Steering Committee. He created the annual “Desert Nurses Appreciation” ceremony. This Chamber event recognizes the best of the best in nursing, which will be celebrating its 15th year in 2020. Art and his spouse Terry, along with several of their fur-babies, have been together for 33 years and counting. Art and Terry received the Rusty Award from “Save A Pet” for hosting a fundraising event at their home to support this non-profit as well as Food In Need of Distribution (FIND) in the Coachella Valley. Art has been an active fundraiser for the “Desert AIDS” walk for the past 4 years. Terry and Art have been a major supporter of the Boys and Girls Club of Cathedral City. Art appeared as Chubacca, from Star Wars and helped auction off a “Star Wars Movie Package” to benefit the kids and programs at the Club. Art has one film credit in an episode of Unsolved Mysteries, in 1993, titled “The Fugitive Nurse”. A fan of the many works of Del Shores, Art is excited to be a Board Member for Del’s foundation to help support other budding writers, directors and actors. There is a very fun side to Art. He and his partner enjoy entertaining theme parties and have, at times, invited all Cathedral City Cove neighbors. Art also enjoys his alter ego by dressing up and performing as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. Marketing is key to Art and he excels in this area through his successful real estate, fundraising and special event activities. Art is a fierce competitor with a natural talent of being creative and results driven.
